Potluck Embellishments - 2/25 to 3/3

Dispel the Monday blues with this Monday morning to Sunday night challenge.

Moderator: Ellie

This week's challenge is to go through your embellishment box, drawer, closet, or room!!! to find some embellishments just hanging around waiting to be used. I was motivated one day to use up a bunch of stuff I've had for a while and found these fish stickers that I made into cards:

Then I found these card candies (I think from Linda Jo) from a swap last year and made these cards:

I made probably a dozen cards that day using things up that had been sitting around. So your challenge is to pull out some old embellishments and finally get them out of your stash. I can't imagine that any of us don't have some but if you are completely out, make one.

You have until Sunday, March 3rd to post a photo of your project to be eligible for a prize drawn at random.

Potluck Players:

Elaine, I love this. Was planning to organize my craft room someday soon and this will inspire me to get started.

What a great idea! I have LOTS of pieces in different places and now I have been challenged to use them. Perfect.

Some of the embellishments are from Elaine and Kathy...but some I'm not sure who they are from because they were loose in the bottom of my little bin of goodies!

Great job Trudi! You got a bunch out of your stash! (I recognize the typewriter & hello...but from the topper of the card candy. Girl you are a saver!)

I came across some metal embellishments...stars, swans, flowers and so on.
I picked the metal sunflowers.....surprise, surprise what you find when your cleaning.

Terrie - what a great find...I love the little metal charms!

This challenge was timed perfectly...Samantha asked if I would replenish her stash of cards and I am getting a card collection together as a wedding present as well!
